Limpopo National Park, Massingir

#9 of 9 in Nature in Mozambique
The Limpopo National Park was born when the status of Coutada 16 Wildlife Utilisation Area in Gaza Province, Mozambique, was changed from a hunting concession to a protected area. It forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park with the Kruger National Park in South Africa and the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe.
Administratively, the park is split between Chicualacuala District (6400km2), Massingir District (2100km2), and Mabalane District (1500km2). The park is part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a 35,000 km² peace park that will link this park, Kruger National Park in South Africa, Gonarezhou National Park, Manjinji Pan Sanctuary and Malipati Safari Area in Zimbabwe, as well as the area between Kruger and Gonarezhou, the Sengwe communal land in Zimbabwe and the Makuleke region in South Africa.
With the help of R42 million donated by Germany the new park is being developed with fencing and anti-poaching units. The park is divided up into three separate zones of use: a tourist zone, a wilderness zone, and a resource utilization zone (hunting). In the south is the Massingir Dam and the town of Massingir in Massingir District, which is the administrative headquarters of the new park, while on the northern border is the Limpopo River.

  • I would not recommend this route. The roads are badly corrugated, and entry to the park is expensive. R225 per vehicle, R225 per trailer, R150 per person, plus compulsory overnight camping fee of R150...  more »
  • Desolate with no 1 animal sighting. Roads poorly maintained and no signage. Avoid this park unless you are in transit! Very disappointing to say the least.  more »
